About the Sean McNeill Award
In honor of Sean McNeill and the legacy he leaves behind, the Sean McNeill Award celebrates individuals who exemplify the values of three-term IBO president Sean McNeill: his extraordinary generosity, his commitment to community, and his support of the IBO 'Network, Communicate, Reciprocate' ethos.
We'll also be installing Nicholas Malito as our IBO Grand Marshal!
The IBO will be proud to be marching up Fifth Avenue behind Nicholas Malito, who has demonstrated his commitment to the Irish community by dedicating six years to the Executive Board of the Irish Business Organization, including serving for three years as President. He continues his outstanding leadership and dedication to the IBO as Chair of the IBO Board of Advisors. Nicholas is a partner at Fox Rothschild LLP.
Please only register if you can attend in person - and remember, you can watch on the IBO Facebook Page! We'll go live on Facebook at around 6:30 or so.
As ever, we'll further our mission to
"Network, Communicate, Reciprocate!"
